Update on Events

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing rapidly and as we learn more about this pandemic, United Way of Dane County is uniting the community to respond to this public health emergency. Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our community. With this in mind, we are postponing all in-person events until at least after August 1. Moving forward, we are following recommendations for events and gatherings from the CDC, WHO and local public health authorities.

Please check this page for updates as we reschedule events and contact events@uwdc.org with any questions.

United Way brings our community together in strength to address Dane County’s greatest needs. As we are experiencing racial unrest, an economic downturn and a pandemic, this is more important than ever.

In place of our traditional in-person “Community Kickoff” this month, we will offer monthly opportunities to learn more about community issues, participate in remote or socially distanced volunteer opportunities and support the well-being of our neighbors for the remainder of the year. As in the past, we will celebrate our community’s generosity and impact at Community Celebration in March 2021.

Our community’s greatest resource is our people – when families are strong, our whole community is strong. Join us to engage with our community, expand your network, volunteer and make real, measurable change in Dane County.

Join us at our next event!
